NERD: Home Firewall/router

so my home Netgear FVS 318 took a dump last night and i need to replace it. I liked it but only complaint being that it only supported 15 port forwarding rules.

What are you guys using? are you happy with it? i have a budget of up to 200$ so its up in the air as to what to get.

They have nub Linux firewalls out there that even have the noob frontends so you can adjust/edit firewall rules that look just like the linksys frontends.


It would take you about 30 minutes to setup and would last you a life time vs something you'll replace every year.

Right now I use a Linksys WRT54G v4 flashed w/ DD-WRT SP2 micro edition. Works good for me since I'm on a budget. I've been temped to get this:

Looks like a really nice router and easy setup, but I'm still shopping around.

Why's that? Hell, I'm about to get an ASA 5505. Affordable, POE, works with ASDM, 7.2 code and it's a Cisco product. They are brand spanking new, but can be had for sub 1K. Not too shabby for a SOHO firewall that would work for most SMBs.

Pix is a bit outdated, but can be found dirt cheap and have great functionality. Set up a site-to-site VPN with your office, softphone with extension and the boss will never know the difference.

Take care,

My '03 Sold.

All I was saying is that you can get something a little bit more convenient than a PIX for the money. I'm not saying that a PIX sucks (and they definitely don't) but I just don't see most home users setting one up and config. it. I guess I'm just a minimalist when it comes to home equipment.

And I admit I'm a noob here on the fourm and I would rather get schooled by RiSK then any other nerd

It was me port scanning you.... So in the interest of your argument... what did you do to the port scanners, and the people that tried to ssh, and the UDP attackers?

We setup a seperate Inet connection for marketing emails (or otherwise known as spam). The ASA was no problem, but within' 10 minutes of having the router up it was getting brute force login attempts. AAA/ACS is a blessing and it is interesting to review the logs. The ACL was easy, and it gets thousands of hits per hour. Must be a lot of really bored people out there. Oh, this was before we actually started sending the emails too.

Take care,

My '03 Sold.
